    Pros

    A wonderful brand built over 50 years of work at the most senior level
    Some of the nicest and most collegiate people you could hope to work with
    A strong basis of fairness that underpins all major decisions
    Highly multinational, no single country dominates

    Cons

    Has historically been highly conservative, although this has been changing in the last couple of years
    The partnership structure means decision making requires considerable consensus

    Advice to Management

    Keep experimenting

    Pros

    The company offers top class benefits and they express genuine interest in the well being of employees. People are fun to work with and the work can (sometimes) be interesting. Often fast-paced, which keeps things from becoming droll.

    Cons

    Pay is so-so and raises are minimal. Bonuses are hit or miss. There is little to no ladder to climb. As an assistant there is almost no hope of moving up. As a Researcher there is possibility to advance, but there is a ceiling. You cannot become a consultant by working here. Consultants are hired from outside and they all have 15+ years of experience and an advanced degree. This is a place to gain experience, not a place to build a long-term career.

    Advice to Management

    More financial motivation (i.e. fairer raises and bonuses) and more opportunity for advancement might improve work productivity and motivation and increase retention rates.

    Pros

    Egon Zehnder's US offices have great workplace culture with professional, friendly researchers. Working there is a huge opportunity for professional growth and gaining a variety of experience across different industries.

    Cons

    Egon Zehnder is a very horizontal organization; researchers can take on more responsibilities within research but there is no path toward consulting within the company.
